Barefoot99 is correct, we travel on our 1989 32 Sedan "Aquaholic". Our 1973 28 Express "Easy Does It" is our 'Home Boat'.
We Love both boats. I have never owned or even navigated a 37 M, but I will say that the few times we have been aboard them we drool a bit :-) The 32 is wonderful for handling and roomy enough for us the way that we travel. However, the actual 'stateroom' with a walk around bed and also the shower on the 37's are awfully appealing!

Dream boat = 41' Marquis!
1990 model = dream come true
Winning lottery = dream realized


... and now I'll go back to watching the 10+" of snow build up on the deck I'm building. (Hey, wintertime is for non-boat stuff!)

Don't forget you can cruise on one engine. You don't go twice as fast on two, but you burn twice as much gas. I've been surprised how little speed you gain with the second engine. We do a lot of trolling on one and then use two when we're ready to go faster.

I have read several threads and debates on the merits of cruising slowly on one engine. I have never tried it. Think i might give that a try this coming season and experiment with results.

By the way, if interested in a 37 with 360 motors as Jim Elias suggested, there is one for sale. It is listed on the Marinette Facebook group. I think it is in Missouri.

Anyone have a clue as to what the fuel burn on that^^^ is at cruise (10-12mph)?
